The good souls over at Movato have crafted a basic timeline of the history of real estate, beginning in 334 B.C. (when Alexander the Great conquered Persia, showing "aggressive acquisition of real estate by force") and ending now, when the market is saturated with foreclosures and short sales. Also represented are milestones such as the creation of the MLS, the launch of Craigslist, and the advent of Google Maps, a much-loved featured that died, sadly, last year.
